Who doesn’t like good news when it arrives earlier than expected? It was my surprise and honor to discover yesterday that Flight Emergency had been named a Finalist (Aviation Non-Fiction) in Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards! The news came out a few days earlier than I had noted the announcement date on my calendar. Nearly 1,000 entries in 101 categories from 16 countries competed to be a Finalist, determined by 252 category-expert judges. Why not look over the complete list of Finalists and put a few on your summer to-read list?
This excerpt from a previous post, Entering Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards, explains a bit about the contest:
Dan Poynter and his company Para Publishing LLC has always been at the forefront of the publishing industry. Now he is recognizing the quickly-growing world of eBooks in their very own awards contest. Other book award programs I’ve seen offer awards for eBooks as a sideline to print books, or do not offer different categories for eBooks as they do for print books. But in Dan Poynter’s Global eBook Awards, Flight Emergency and all other Nominated entries are competing against books in their own categories, as well as “best of” categories, such as cover and illustrations.
Winners will be announced August 18 at the Second Annual Awards Ceremony in Santa Barbara, California. Congratulations to all Finalists!
